So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

So here's the big question... The tax credit is gone, so the price on used Bolts will probably skyrocket when this first round of leases turns in. I'm happy with my car, but I'd sure like faster fast charging, which will probably be a thing in 2020 - Is everybody planning on buying Kias or Hyundais?...

Re: OTA Bolt EV software update through OnStar

Yeah I think you're right, the update completely breaks what was a picky system to being with. I can't for the life of me get ANY videos to play (JPEGS show, so I know it's not my thumb drive) I've tried every encoding scheme in Handbrake, every extension, every CODEC, a mess of different resolution...

Re: OTA Bolt EV software update through OnStar

I did the update, but I don't encode movies to MP4, so it didn't bother me. Getting full screen Android Auto was worth the update. You could just re-encode your videos?

Re: Center Rear-View Mirror/Camera in Cabin Gets Very Warm

Yup, it does that. It's fine. Or at least mine's been doing that for two years to no ill effect. Funny, I was just thinking about how long the display was going go last the other day. I don't know how many other digital mirrors there out there, or what their maintenance and failure situation is like...

Best solvent to remove California CAV sticker residue?

Now, I know technically I can get extended red CAV stickers for my car, but I'm never single occupancy ANYWAY, and the white ones just turned in to pumpkins... Has anybody had any luck with getting the "VOID VOID VOID" sticker residue off the bumpers? I can say that denatured alcohol reall...

Re: Rumors of adaptive cruise control? And more?

This is where I read it... https://www.autoblog.com/2018/10/04/2019-chevy-volt-bolt-opinion/ Especially with the adaptive cruise control now available in both models, the question arises, far more than even in other contemporary vehicles: Who is driving and what is being driven? This is not a bad th...

Rumors of adaptive cruise control? And more?

Some autoblog blog thing said that the 2019 Bolt had adaptive cruise and a way to set a lower top state of charge?

True? Can we get these updates on earlier years?

Re: Trailer Hitch

Anybody come up with a slick solution for the trailer light wiring harness? There's infinite garbage on the internet that claims to work with any car from any planet, which probably means that none of them work...

Thoughts or experiences on this subject?

Re: Hello from ChargePoint!

Any OCPP hardware? Halarious, because 3 weeks ago they were telling me about a "rip and replace" program where I could throw away the four perfectly good chargers I just bought to then turn around and buy theirs, which are probably fine hardware and all, but will be trash if they ever get ...

Re: Hello from ChargePoint!

Nope, never implemented. Chargepoint won't work with my OCPP chargers at this time anyway.They only want to use their own hardware, which I get, and is fine, and I get it, plus they don't have OCPP but some proprietary protocol, which I get and is fine. But having owned my fair share of carrier lock...
